I had lost my voice for a long time, and i went astray.

Between The Rock and The Sky

Traveling between heaven and earth
Where there is only horizon
Caught between
What is and
What might be

The mind wanders
Always revisiting
A face it's studied
So very well

This moment
Of weightlessness
Is fraught with danger
For it is not yet time to ascend
And landings can end with a crash

The heart races
Fearing it
Is unequal
To the task ahead

Between the Rock
and the Sky we travel
Between the Rock
and the sky
We are lost

The hands tremble
Longing for an
They have never known

When at last
The veil
Is pulled back
Will it have been worth the trip

Between the rock and the sky
We travel
Between the rock
And the sky
We are lost

The time for
Counting stars
Has passed
These feet need
To touch the ground

Though the heart
May race
the hands
They still tremble
And the mind
wanders on

Between the rock and
The sky we traveled
Between the rock and
The sky
We found peace

  I think we all spend some time here. It's that place where we feel we are just marking time, waiting for we know not what. I think everyone has been there, we just describe it differently. For a moment I was in a metaphorical airplane trying either to land or take off.
Overall I like the form of this. The punctuation is not needed because you used the line breaks to control the pauses. The word choice and imagery is good, so I have no really constructive criticism for you. Glad you voice is back. Mine is slowly warming up, and I am going to try some different forms in the coming weeks.
